Communications is a vital function at every level of our union. How we communicate with one another – whether it's through face-to-face meetings, newsletters, flyers, or digital tools – shapes our connection with our members locally and across the nation.

As a union activist, it's important that you are able to communicate with your fellow members. Use the Communications guide to assist you in reaching and mobilizing members with the help of communications tools.

Use the Items Simple Tools and Tips To Create Rich Communications for Your Local:


REMINDER: Always be very clear to identify yourself in your union role, be it an officer or member. Do not ever claim to be speaking as a federal employee or agency employee, or ever speak using your job title unless authorized to do so by your agency. As long as you identify yourself as speaking only as a union activist/officer, the agency cannot prevent your ability to speak to the press over issues of labor relations.
